View Full Version : Incorporating an external DLL


10-05-2010, 05:56 AM
I need to read Pervasive SQL data that stores floating point numbers in 2 fields, a 2 byte integer and a 4 byte integer. I have a DLL that both Crystal Reports and Excel can load that gives me a function that converts these 2 fields to a standard Double.
How can I incorporate this DLL into Alpha so that I can create a calculated field that combines the data?

Hi Barbara,

Take a look at http://members.home.nl/xbasic/01c224982e1493a01/01c22496ca13aaf05/index.html It shows how to access dll functions with xbasic.
